Well done....these are really hilarious!
The bullets bouncing off the can was a nice touch.
This has been posted a few times on here and I always enjoy it each time.
Saw this one right next to the one posted. Funny too
Women and Europeans will appreciate the softer recoil!
LOL shoot the 9mm I do and try that! These are just for my high cap vehicle guns anyway. Both the 45 and the 9mm are for little girls who wear pretty pink panties. Big boys carry full power 10mm or a 454 Casull.
Going to be carrying my Gemini Customs 454 Alaskan all next week at the ranch in NM
Funny videos! Thanks for sharing, I had never seen these before.
I must admit, while I realize its all in jest, for me I find a little bit of truth in it. I personally do not own any 9mm guns whatsoever. I do own a .380 pocket pistol for when it's that or nothing, but if I'm going to carry something larger than it, I don't want to guess as to whether it's going to be effective.
As for training with 9 because it's cheaper, my personal feeling is that I should train with what what I am going to carry and become proficient with exactly what I will use in a high-stress situation. I don't go as far as to practice with SD ammo, but I want to shoot my .40s, .45s, and 10mms when I practice so I can improve and perform better with my specific tools, even if it costs a little more.
With all this said, people who have issues with recoil - whomever that may be - would be better served to carry whatever they can best manage than to avoid carrying all together. All joking aside about bullets "bouncing off", we all know a .22 mag to the head is not going to be shaken off and is likely going to be fatal. Shot placement is more crucial than caliber as a missed shot of .500 Mag is less effective than a kick in the groin.
Edit: Well, depending on your kick and who it is you are kicking, you may do more hearing damage with your missed shot - LOL!
Fact Check = TRUE

While I must admit that 90% of the guns I own and carry are 9mm, the rounds bouncing off the can was pretty darn funny!
Cars and guns - There is no replacement for displacement - yes I am old school!
What I want to know is why these threads even get revisited?
The 9mm is a great cartridge--for women and Europeans (i.e. girly-men).
A few decades ago, I was visiting with a gun buddy at his house he showed me a fired 9mm FMJ projectile that was taken out of his leg. He was at a range or maybe in someone's yard shooting, I can't recall those details. Someone next to my friend accidentally shot him in the leg with the 9mm. My friend did not even go to a hospital. He went to his doctors office where the doc removed the bullet from his leg and sent him home. If that round had been a +P+ expanding bullet, it would probably have been a lot more serious. But, in reality, a 45 ACP hardball round is much more likely to bounce off of sheet metal than 9mm.
Good thing it wasn’t 10mm, he would have been vaporized.
It’ll blow a mans head clean off!
Oh wait.... sorry!
Honestly, since I have recently discovered the 38 Super, I do question some of the things I have been told about the 9mm. The 38 Super really is a super round by comparison.
